My husband and I had dinner here tonight and it was delicious. The staff are excellent - polite and fast but with the ability to make us feel valued guests in their restaurant. I ordered two entree serves and they were both quite large. The flavours of both our meals were delicious. This is a restaurant I would highly recommend.

On our day in Dubrovnik, we fought the masses from the cruise lines and wanted to find somewhere to have a nice lunch. We heard the food in Croatia was just ok and I hadn't done my homework on Trip Advisor. So, we asked a local man on the street to tell us where the "best place to eat" would... More

Our party of four adults ate her last week without reservation and they managed to fit us in, but advised that there would be a delay in getting food as they were extremely budy. Forewarned is forearmed so we expected a wait and ordered some drinks. Service was very good and our food order once taken was not that delayed.... More

The food was overcooked and service was just okay. For the price, there are better restaurants to choose from in Old Town.

We were looking for a place for lunch and stopped here. We ate rice noodles and Marco Polo salad. Both were good, nothing to complain about the quality. Place was also peaceful. On the midday the tables were in the shadow which was a big plus during a hot day.

Situated at a small alley in the old city. Lovely ambience. We had tuna steak which was lukewarm. We feedback to the staff but he claims that it's meant to be like that. Not too sure about this because he couldn't quite Converse well in English. Otherwise, the tuna tasted quite good. Hubby's stUffed pork loin was good. Totally Bill... More

The place is very close to Stradun and Orlando's column, yet away from hustle and bustle of the city, nestled in one of the inner court yards. Staff is friendly and quick to deliver all kinds of additional small requests. For the beginning they bring carrot soup in small shots as an appetizer, in the end of meal - cherry... More

I took the precaution of reserving a table, lucky I did. When we arrived we took a table a little in from the door however the waiter said "no he had a better table for us", as we had struck up a conversation with the couple on the next table we stayed put. My partner had the fish soup followed... More
